May Gurney signs £4 million preferred supplier agreement with Speedy

May Gurney has signed a two-year £4m preferred supplier agreement with Speedy. Speedy will provide a comprehensive package of tools and equipment to the infrastructure services company, including tools, generators, pumps, lifting gear, surveying equipment and temporary site accommodation.

Richard Walsham, procurement director at May Gurney, said: “Throughout the three-month tender process, we have consistently been impressed with Speedy’s quick response time and ability to create tailored solutions to a wide variety of challenges.

“We have a broad and diverse set of needs and Speedy is able to offer us a single point of contact from which to source a comprehensive range of equipment.

“Speedy’s environmental and sustainability initiatives were also an important factor as we are committed to promoting best practice in this area.”

Richard Stirland, national accounts manager at Speedy said: “With Speedy staff working within May Gurney’s plant hire desk, we can offer superior management information, including electronic invoicing, for the company’s nationwide hire needs.

“In addition to this, our national coverage, broad product range and availability of equipment will ensure a high level of service.”

May Gurney is an infrastructure services company working in the public and regulated sectors delivering sustainable improvements to front-line services across the UK. They ensure that the road, utility, rail and waterways networks are in good repair, that household waste is collected, manage and recycled, and that public buildings are well maintained.

This latest preferred supplier deal for Speedy follows a series of large-scale agreements secured over the last few months with the likes of Interserve, The Environment Agency and Southern Electric Contracting.
